Hey, you're welcome, nice changes.

Vigor prevents enrage from happening since it prevents damage dealt to Vron. It's a replacement effect which replaces the damage that is dealt with +1/+1 counters since damage isn't dealt enrage doesn't trigger. Rite of Passage works how you want with Vron because it doesn't prevent damage, but also puts a +1/+1 counter when damage is dealt.

Goblin Bombardment could replace many different cards simply because it's a win condition with Vron that's only two mana. Bombardment is also another card to infinite combo with Polyraptor and it can prevent ending the game in a draw with Marauding Raptor + Polyraptor. Anara, Wolvid Familiar could replace Cacophodon. Is Cacophodon part of a combo that I'm not seeing? Crop Rotation could replace Steel Wall.

Rishkar's Expertise and Return of the Wildspeaker are in the precon and they can draw a lot of cards because Vron starts at 5 power. Return being an instant can be cast not on your turn to fill your hand of cards to choose from to cast on your next turn. These spells are excellent with Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient and Old Gnawbone who can make a ton of mana to cast all the cards you draw.

Expertise and Return are actually better spells here than Kindred Summons because with Vron no matter what you're drawing at least 5 cards. Summons requires that you control many Dragons to get the same amount of value. One advantage of Summons is instant speed to potentially reveal both Gnawbone + Charger, cheating them onto the battlefield, but without a way to arrange these Dragons to the top of your library that will be rare.

Sword of Hours is in the precon and it does a lot with Vron since it's a source of repeatable die roll and a way to make Vron bigger with +1/+1 counters. Some budget lands to consider adding in place of some basic lands: Naya Panorama, Jund Panorama, Bonders' Enclave, Rogue's Passage.


Some changes to consider:

If you want creatures will high toughness you can put Wall of Frost for 3 mana. Steel Wall is only 1 mana or for 2 mana you can put Wall of Tanglecord in your deck. All of which is modern legal

Yo you could probs replace Steel Wall with Phyrexian Walker if ya wanna be more mana efficient.

Hey Eloniel, I'm not from France, but that is a very fun coincidence :D

Secret Door will replace Steel Wall , it is very fun and may sometimes be used as a mana dump. Hopefully there is a cool and thematic Dungeon for Arcades! Sadly there is no green wall in the new set:(

I'm still not sold on Flumph (even though it has a pretty neat Full Art Card), but I'm very interested in your experience with it!

Hey K4m4r0 so regarding Flumph since you choose the opponent that get the card, you can choose the one that is way behind other and benefit from a card draw, personally i think it's worth it. You can make deal with other player with it like i attack you with it and you block with 1/1, 2/2 or 3/3 and we are both rewarded that way you draw and you remove a creature from the opponent board.

Regarding Steel Wall and Excavated Wall , a new card was spoiled between my last message and now. It's Secret Door , ok it's one blue instead of a generic mana but i feel we would want to use more often his ability than the mill one.

Two 0/4 defender in the same set, maybe it's a defender cycle in this set and we will receive a green defender ?

PS: are you french ? Kamaro is the name of a rap artist there.

Hey Eloniel, I haven't tested it yet. Our group hasn't met for a while now, due to the restrictions. Hopefully soon! I don't like cards who give advantege to my opponents, therefore I probably won't add Flumph . Aside from flying, he isn't very special either. You are right with Excavated Wall and I will get my hands on one and switch it with Steel Wall , thanks!

Also Excavated Wall is a very slight upgrade to Steel Wall even if we will not use the mill ability most of the time.

Assault Formation may be a good consideration as an alternative to your main win con. Steel Wall is a great cheap CMC consideration, if you're interested. Great deck and a really cool idea!
